Aided by the natural elements that surround it, the Chaleur bay is well protected from the winds and enjoys a microclimate that warms its waters. Its name, which means "bay of warmth", is very appropriate!
The bay was so named by Jacques Cartier in 1534, when he arrived during a July heat wave! This seaside region will seduce you with its long inviting beaches caressed by the waves of a sea beaming with magnificence, and with its mountainous panoramas and red cliffs.
The Chaleur Bay is a member of the Most Beautiful Bays in the World Club.
